Today is world tourism day. It’s a day set aside by the United Nations’ World Tourism Organization to raise awareness about tourism’s actual and potential contribution to sustainable development. This year’s theme is Tourism and the Digital Transformation. The overall goal is to put the opportunities provided to tourism, by technological advances including big data, artificial intelligence and digital platforms, on the map of sustainable development.

When you think of getting easy access to the cheapest tours, travel deals and flight to any destinations in the world using online booking platforms like Afro Tourism, you are already thinking about the opportunities that technologies provide to tourism.

The easiest ones to related with, of course, are the inspirational travel messages that technologies engender through pictures and videos. As we celebrate World Tourism Day today, here are 10 amazing pictures of tourist places across Africa. I hope they stir up some joyous memories in you.

1. Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Mountain Kilimanjaro In Tanzania

Mount Kilimanjaro is a “Sky island.” At 5,895 meters (19,341 feet), it is Africa’s highest peak, and easily tops many bucket lists. The route to the top brings you to its varied and dramatic natural habitat.

The lullaby cadence of crashing waves on the beautiful coastline of Bazaruto Archipelago will spoil you forever!

3. Sahara Dunes, Morocco

Very few places on earth can be compared to the Sahara Desert in terms of incredibly dramatic landscape. This desert promises a once-in-a-lifetime desert adventure to all visitors.

4. Great Sphinx of Giza, Egypt

The Sphinx is a colossal temple with the body of a lion and a human head. The monument is 70 meters long and 20 meters high – just as tall as a six-story apartment block.

5. Victoria Falls, Zambia and Zimbabwe

The Devil’s Pool, Victoria Falls, Zambia

This 108-meter high cascade is the world’s largest waterfalls, one of our universe’s most majestic water spectacles, and one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

6. The great migration, Tanzania

 

This annual migration of giant herds of grazers across Northern Tanzania and Kenya is truly a spectacular event to witness. Photos can’t tell the whole story, especially the thunder of hooves on dirt as more than a million wildebeest and several hundred thousand zebras make their annual migration

7. Pink Lake, Senegal

Lake Retba, as locals usually call it, is a coral pink lake nestled between white sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean in Senegal. This unique body of water is one of the most popular tourist sites in Senegal and its fame dates back to the time when it was the finishing point of the off-road car race, the Dakar Rally.

8. Wonders of the Nile, Egypt

Take the romantic felucca and cruise down the Nile to see some relics of one of the world’s most ancient civilizations. The highlights include the Valley of the Kings, with its monumental statues, and the magnificent Kom Ombo Temple, north of Aswan on the east bank.

9. Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya

This park offers the greatest bird spectacle in the world with over 1 million resident flamingos, providing one of Kenya’s most unforgettable sights.

10. Table Mountain, South Africa

The imposing status of the Table Mountain and the Atlantic ocean in its shadows make Cape Town, one of the world’s best beach cities, also one of the world’s most photogenic. When you visit, don’t miss the ride in a cable car where you’ll get great views, fantastic sunrises/sunsets and a great photo.
